  1. Fantastic write up, Sandra! I really need to grab a few free nights this week if I can and catch up on this show.

    What I like about this show (without ever having seen it, haha) is not only that it’s based on real stuff and a real person, but also that the real person provides consults for the show/writers. That also makes it all the more interesting, like you said, to find out that the show/writers still provide falsehoods. I wonder why?

    Thanks for sharing this!

  2. Thanks Alicia! I agree, I like that it’s science education and entertainment all at once, which does make it a bit disappointing there are some misleading things. But he said they were just a few minor details for the sake of storytelling, nothing’s seriously off.
